Certificate Programs


Professional Certificate

A Professional Certificate is a formal academic program for students who need to acquire new knowledge or skills to augment their professional credentials. The Certificate consists of a minimum of 12 credit hours at the undergraduate level. The Certificate consists of a combination of required and elective courses in a discipline or set of disciplines that support specific program objectives. Students in the Certificate program will have a unique Academic Plan.

Admission Requirements

Certificate students must meet the admissions requirements of their specialized program. Students will apply through the same process as other degree-seeking students.

Tuition and Aid

Tuition is set for each Certificate program. Federal Financial Aid is not available when enrolled in a stand-alone Certificate program.

Transfer Credit

Coursework earned in the Certificate may be applied to other AU post-baccalaureate programs, but at least 50% of any additional degree must consist of new coursework. No outside transfer credit may be used in the coursework for a Certificate program.

Graduation and Certificate Conferral

Students will apply for Certificate Completion (similar to Graduation Application) and see the certificate conferral on their academic record after commencement. Participation in graduation is optional.
